Rhinoceros HornAfrica and China

12 of 13

The demand for powdered rhino horn—a
singularly potent symbol of power and sexual prowess—has sadly caused the near
decimation of the black rhinoceros species in Africa. Most typically used
(illegally) in Chinese medicine and in northern Indian tribes, the horn is
ground up and served in a soup.

Where to Find It: Rhino horn is, for good reason, illegal. Most often poached
in Africa, the major—and unfortunately, increasing—demand is in Asia.
